RealNetworks predicts that upcoming third generation mobile phone networks (or 3G) will create a huge business opportunity for it and it has already managed to make significant deals with various vendors around the world -- earlier this year, Real made an agreement to distribute its mobile version of RealPlayer to Nokia's 9210 Communicator.
Today Real announced that four operators have deployed its technology to their existing 2.5G (or GPRS) networks and are running trial tests with the technology. Operators are AT&T Wireless, Sonera from Finland, StarHub Mobile from Singapore and Telefonica from Spain.

"It's just a technical trial, and shouldn't be taken as an announcement of any planned products or solutions from us," AT&T Wireless spokeperson Jeremy Pemble told Wireless NewsFactor.
